Today designers all over the world create thousands of exclusive things but only few of them go down in history and become legendary. Thanks to Princess Diana Lady Dior handbag became a really cult handbag. A lot of famous women have chosen it as a unique accessory. Lady Dior was released in mid 1990s when the creative manager of Dior Company was Gianfranco Ferre. At first the bag became popular when the First Lady of France Madam Chirac began to wear this exclusive Dior bag as she thought that the bag was gorgeous! Later Lady Dior handbag became a deep success when Lady Di preferred it to the other handbags. In fact, it is Princess Diana’s name that was added to the bag’s name. It is still unknown whether it was merely a coincidence or the handbag was named Lady Dior on purpose. But anyway the legendary princess made this fashionable accessory a real success, provoked heightened interest in it and at the same time made it a symbol of a refined taste.
By the way, the legendary bag is pretty conservative. Lady Dior handbag design has not changed at all – it has a traditional square or rectangular shape, quilted flap, two short straps and a chain. Metal charms in the form of capital letters D, I, O, R are the only decoration. Though its colours are restrained the bag looks chic – it is worth of being given the name ‘lady’! The range of colours is black, white and pink.
Initially only the first ladies and celebrities could afford such a bag but now it can be bought at a much more moderate price. Dior brand has presented several models at the approximate price of 800 – 3000$. Catch the opportunity!

In the history of Lady Dior handbag there were such celebrities as Monica Bellucci, Diane Kruger and Carla Bruni among those who advertised it. Last year John Galiano designed the cosmetics bag for Diorissime cosmetics. And he derived inspiration from legendary Lady Dior handbag!
I bought this handbag via Polyvore and I have to say I have spent a lot of money for it! I don't spend much money for clothes - because fashion goes so quickly by, also not for shoes (maybe just here and there). But for handbags .... well, this is an another story! Purses are my weakness and simply I can not resist them! I like traditionaly, classic handbags. Maybe I have also some accessoires, they are from ZARA or similar cheaper brands, but some handbags are legendary. For these models I spend lot of money because they are timeless! Unfortunately! So, You (can) will see some handbags really often on this blog and this lovely new baby-bag as well. I hope I'll have a lot of fun with it, because I've received it - guess what - exactly on Valentine's Day! :)
